The new principle Mrs. Avey does not does not care about the students. The teachers at David Reese do care; however, the directions that they receive from the principle is often in conflict from their beliefs.

The principle and teachers at this school truly care about our children's education and safety. I know things happen, but when there is an issue, they handle it and they inform the parents. My daughter enjoys going to school. I have heard so my good things about the Twilight Program I intend on enrolling my daughter in that program when she is in the first grade. Thank You, Mrs Campos and all the teachers for being a positive influence on our children. Thank You, Darcia

The principle and teachers at this school truly care about our children s education and safety. Being such a large school, I know things fall through the cracks sometimes, but there has not been an issue that has not been looked into when it s brought to their attention. My son enjoys going to school especially the Twilight after school program which has helped him become more independent and have more confidence. Thank you to the Principle for his leadership and the teachers.

My son attended David Reese for 1st grade in the 2005-2006 school year. I've had my children in the EGUSD for the past 12 yrs so I have come across different teachers, school staff, principals, etc. Sadly, the 1 year my son attended David Reese was the worse experience I've encountered regarding my children's education. The school experienced a change in principals and the new principal was not interested in fixing problems, just waiting to see if the problems went away.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
